Hi! My name is Alyssa. I’m a Visual Communication Design Student at the University of Washington in Seattle.
I’ve lived in the Seattle area my entire life and grew up training at Pacific Northwest Ballet. I love music (shoutout if you caught my Cage the Elephant shirt above) and I've recently had the opportunity to travel more and enjoy using that time to learn about local designers and artists. My favorite so far has to be Cooper & Gorfer’s photo series I Know Not These My Hands, which I saw at Fotografiska in Stockholm. The series is an amazing blend of ethnography, feminism, and nearly painterly photo treatments. I also enjoy photography and my first Adobe love was easily Photoshop, although I am a big Indesign fan now. Something I’ve been interested in learning about is Ethical and Sustainable Fashion and I am looking to explore how that movement can be broadened and better understood through visual design.
I’m excited to continue learning and growing as a designer and would love for you to get in contact!
